Reserving juices, pit cherries to make 2 cups. If necessary, add enough water to juice to make 1/4 cup.

In saucepan, bring cherry juice, sugar and butter to boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add cherries and rhubarb; cook over medium heat until rhubarb is tender, about 5 minutes.

Blend cornstarch with rum; stir into fruit mixture and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 2 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)

Divide ice cream among cups or bowls; spoon warm fruit mixture over top.
